Bloodthicker is an atmospheric exploration of New Orleans’ contemporary rap community as seen through the eyes of three artists and friends whom share a unique bond through the shared legacies of their fathers. Young Juve, T.Y. and Lil Soulja Slim, whose fathers were Juvenile, B.G., and Soulja Slim respectively, navigate their paths to success which are fraught with the excesses and trappings of street culture, grounded by their responsibilities to family, and immutably influenced by their fathers’ distinct legacies. Delicately crafted, Bloodthicker is a poetic documentary that explores the truth of identity of a community often only seen in caricature.
